will consider to measures to raise taxes for education. which one is better for schools? >> is hard to say which one is exactly better for schools because it depends on what your view of what works best in government. do you think should handle the money, who do you trust and how much you want to pay? let's compare proposition 38 and 30 >> guarantees politicians cannot touch it >> proposition 38 is waging a new campaign to funnel billions to our schools. attorney molly maunder is the biggest backer spending $20 million of art. she says the money will not go to the general fund but directly to the schools k through 12 and to early childhood programs. >> the money in 38 for the schools is barricaded from sacramento >> prop. 38 would raise the income taxes for almost anyone on a sliding scale. $75,000, you pay $1,082. 150,000, shell out 2700 in taxes and this will last for 12 years >> governor brown wants voters to support his ballot initiative, proposition 30. it raises sales tax a quarter percent for the next four years and raises income tax on those making more than $250,000 annual for the next

that were not given adequate education that they deserved yesterday, then i can talk about that. >> so, you probably know what the numbers were looking like 10 years ago as i was. thank you, mr. chair. that's all i have. >> colleagues, i'd like to turn it over to public comment. i think it's really important for us to hear from members of the public. so, i have a number of speaker cards that i'm going to read. but any member of the public who would like to speak on items 1 and 2, i would ask that you come forward. so, the speaker cards are from sharon hewett, robert woods, lilly ratcliff, jamil patterson, peter alexander, and ace washington. please come up. you each have two minutes. and we also have shaman walton. >>> hi, i'm [speaker not understood], and i did not fill out a card. i do apologize. one thing we're talking about solutions. first i wanted you to picture this. my kids' friends, when i encourage them to go back to school after they graduate, say, hey, i'm not going to live beyond 21. what for? there's hopelessness. solution, maybe we need cameras in the classrooms. maybe we nee
more tax dollars to sacramento, they'll cut education again. here's a new approach. prop thirty-eight sends billions in new education dollars straight to our local schools, and guarantees the politicians can't touch it. thirty-eight will restore the education cuts from sacramento. so remember this number. >> a campaign marked by harsh accusations, it is rare to see a movement of bipartisan levity but that came today courtesy of mitt romney. this is what he had to say after being introduced by president clinton. >> if there is one thing we have learned in this election season, by the way, it is that a few words from bill clinton can do a man of lot of good. all i need to do now is wait a couple of days for that bounce to happen >> that was a clear nod to the president clinton's speech praising the president. both brawny and president obama were talking about foreign policy today in new york. >> president obama is urging fellow leaders to take a stand against violence in the moslem world >> i do believe it is the obligation of all leaders in all countries to speak out forcefully a
of education forum with the coleman advocates and other community partner and bayville and more details will be followed. >> thank you. item e, parent advisory council report. pap representative. >> good evening commissioners. thank you for the time. i am tony telrico and my daughter is at sunset elementary school. she's a joyful learner and proud of her school community. this is my year on the pac so i'm a month in and we had two engaging meetings so far. we are looking forward to working there. it's to represent parent voices and perspective to inform of board of education policies and this will address our issues for this school year and our process for developing action plans to pursue those issues. the pac looked at data about student achievement over the past several years, identify ways to engage families to strengthen the district's initiatives and reviewing major questions and concerns that heard from families during our community conversations that the pac has conducted over the last few years. at the beginning of this school year the pac members met with superintenden
that he and the family provided. his contributions to our education community will be sorely missed, but for the generations to come forward for will provide, continue to provide the kind of education and job skills that we need for our city. over the last few weeks, i have been working closely with the city college to assess their fiscal, managerial, and accreditation issues. i want to thank the people behind me. in particular, the interim chancellor pamela fisher is here, and the current trustees, natalie burke is here today, i need a barrier is also here. thank you very much. also representing our students, mr. walker is here as well. [applause] with any educational institution that has value as our city college, not only did we work with those that are currently involved with them, but we worked as a city family. there is no way to express at this time the need to have this a family together to support our city college. so also i have representatives of the comptroller's office, then rosenfield, mickey callahan, the human resources divisions that are here today, nadia from our p
now, you asked -- supervisor cohen, you asked when did this start, when did this education drop off. it started before you were born. it's been happening a long time. so, when you said -- when you said it takes a healthy community, that means working. healthy -- if you don't work, you don't eat. and, so, this is what we're trying to do in bayview hunters point. i come here with a message for you to appeal to your better wisdom and your judgment because that's what [inaudible]. >> thank you very much, sir. >>> thank you, sir. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >>> i'm even too old to really address this because i'm over 10 years removed. but i can remember when tupac died and one of my cool teachers put "we love you, tupac" a picture of him in the class. and the principal told her to remove it. and that just points to the disconnect. i mean, instead of trying to get me to understand shakespeare first, who i might not like or don't care about, try to show me how writing a thesis is equivalent to writing a good song. you've got to meet the youth where they're at. and what i see from
full well many students who have not been able to participate in college education. and even in [speaker not understood], because by the way, you have to be academically ready to ascend and not just be at the labor reer level. -- laborer level. so, i'm happy, supervisor cohen, and president chiu, you understand where we are at and we are not turning a blind aye to this issue -- [multiple voices] >> thank you, commissioner. commissioner fewer. >> yes, i'd like to comment a little bit about looking at the state. quite frankly, when i saw this data, i myself was very, very shocked particularly about the students not on track for graduation. supervisor, i share your concern. i think as far as the pathway, this is a pathway to nowhere. so, i just want to emphasize about the difference between feel better and do better. i know if you're not really in this conversation all the time, what does it really mean when we give two sets of data that say, on track c or better and on track d or better. on that track d or better is a lie, it is a lie to all our students because we instituted a
. and everything, all five issues, education, economic development, all those issues are something that's been passed down under, hasn't been taken care of. i'm glad to see the education part of this is coming forth because without the ebbv indication we cannot have nothing. i'm here to say and ed lee, hear me loud and clear because it starts from room 200. everything that -- all these boards, they're listening right now. mr. ed lee, this a-c-e and i'm telling you i'm on the case and we're going make sure that we implement this outmigration in my lifetime for my three kids. the thing about it, why i'm so adamant, ladies and gentlemen, i've been doing this for 20 years. but i have children that have children that have children. so, therefore, i'm here representing three cs. it is sort of historical. yes, i'm 58 years old, but i have great grand kids and all be damned that i've been here all these 20 years and when i'm in the position to help out their generation, they can say pa-pa helped us. i want to be the pa-pa for all my african-american community because it seems like our leadership is in
with the new budget cuts. of course, my university is being privatized. all of the higher education is being privatized. all through the uc system. how do you run a modern state with tax cuts? we resort to desperate, back last november, we were asked to vote to make four indian casinos in san diego county pony up money. i thought this was a joke. they voted to do it. now, the governor proposes to borrow against future revenues. how did they deal with these social problems when the economic problems were far worse than what we can imagine today? this is from larry halprin's. and it has these quotes from roosevelt on the wall. he said in one of his talks to the people, "the test is not whether we have more, it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little". it's a different philosophy than that which we have become used to. what i am going to show you is a lost civilization. it's a strange place. and yet, it becomes oddly familiar after a while because we built it and use it every day without knowing it. it has been buried. the living new deal project is like an archaeological dig
conversation for us to have with our families because so much of our education system is rooted in mediocrity. so, trying to convince our families that there is a better should not have been a conversation we were spending any time on, and we did. and it took us a year to get through that. there has been growth in the last three years. it's slow, and it's not enough and we acknowledge that. we're starting to see a lot of the blending of services both at the city and the school district, which include after school and out of school time. and i think that that has been a tremendous support for so many of our kids. but i also want to acknowledge that all of our 21st century funding has been eliminated in our high schools and that has impact. and these are the constant things that we're dealing with. we work off of a budget that's projected and then we're told you really don't have that money. so, the scaling up and then scaling back is just part of our reality. and it's not an excuse, but it's a reality. but we continue to invest in our communities and we continue to invest in our schools. and i
is the first time i met you. i'm a product of a public school. every bit of my education has been k through 12 has been through public school. so, i'm trying to figure out at what point -- what point do we start to lose this battle? that's why i asked for the longitudinal study the last ten years. it would be great if we could go even further back than that. i'm going to -- mr. arm entrout, i want to ask you to follow-up to get the answers to the questions that i propose here today. this last question really is -- i'm just looking for a better understanding, i've got? some concrete solutionses that the unified school district is going to be implementing to help combat these high drop-out rates. * i've heard some solutions today about the partnerships that you've passed, that -- partnerships with the city and the cbos and i've heard about a through g requirementses. i agree like many other members, a through g should be the standard no matter what. i do remember when i came through, i graduated -- there were some students who did finish with a through g and some didn't but still were
? commissioner wynn. >>i would like to appoint brian fox to the public education enenrichment committee. >> yes, i have two and -- [inaudible] to the public education enrichment fund. >> any others? okay. seeing none let's move on to the next item. this is the item l, special order of business. i now call the public hearing and adoption of the tentative agreement between the district and the international federation of technical engineers, local 21. is there a motion? >> so moved. >> is there a second? >> second. >> reading of recommendation by superintendent or designee. >> thank you president yee. this say tentative agreement that we reached with local 21 r and extension of the existing collective bargaining agreement and we ask that the board adopt that agreement and the required public disclosure requirements. i want to thank the bargaining teams from local 21. they represent our it work force. >> so there's no public speakers that signed up for this and are there comments from the board or the superintendent? seeing none roll call please. >> thank you. (calling roll). >> seven aye
connections and having a context. when we start talking to people about the importance of school and education, if we have generations of folks who have maybe not graduated from high school or don't have geds or have had a hard time with getting a job and you say you need to go to school to get a job, and that's not something that they have a context for, it's about creating these internships, but also these mentoring opportunities, brown bag series where people come in and share their stories of how they ended up where they are and what that process looked like. and i think for me the most memorable one was when we did it with mayor brown, and he talked about it was right time, right place. that there was somebody that was there to help him. it wasn't because he had this really great plan did & it was all in alignment. he went to san francisco state and somebody took a chance on him and said, this is a program, you're going to be on probation. but if you don't make it, if you don't do what you're supposed to, it's on you. and that really resonated with a lot of the young folks that we had the
and pacific islanders were receiving a different quality of education. in 2007 we found that african-americans were ranked dead last in api scores for all major urban school districts in california. this was the low below even special education students in their api scores for [speaker not understood]. the next year coleman fought for the board of education to close the achievement gap. that resolution to ensure the upcoming district strategic plan was focused on addressing the racial achievement grape in inequity in our school. thankfully the board passed that unanimously. however, the gap has widened, especially for african-american students. many of you might have seen the report that came out talking about the 2011 released analysis comparing the progress of california school districts. unfortunately san francisco received an overall grade of d. and in particular the african-american students as it relates to sfusd, we ranked 127 out of 128. i want to have one of our parent leaders, olivia gudeau, give a statement. >> hi, my name is olivia harris. i am a san francisco resident,
education. but there are so many different issues that are a part of this that this would be a disservice to the community if we only, you know, tackled that issue. and i think that what commissioner mendoza said is absolutely true, that the school district is not going to be able to deal with this on its own. there are so many different issues that have to be a part of the discussion. so, my suggestion would be that, that it may be through supervisor olague's office that we form a small working group of folks, and then come back, you know, to the committee, that we continue this item to the call of the chair so that we have an ongoing discussion. but i think it's really important to the members of the community who took the time to be here, to make sure that we don't drop this ball, if you will, and that we do -- that we continue to move this forward. i do want to acknowledge the deputy superintendent to see if he wants to add anything to this presentation. you know, it's not easy for a school district to have these issues discussed in this way, and i appreciate the fact that we are havi
of school time, youth leadership and department development support education out dumb comeses. and i'll give you examples of acat this timetionv we've funded so far that helps to bridge the gap. -- activities. what has made us unique in the current and upcoming cycle is we have made education our focus for three years and the upcoming three-year. ultimately want to make sure our students are ready to learn and are succeeding in school. and more importantly we cannot be doing these without addressing some of the preconditions. as supervisor cohen asked earlier how can we fixed this, there is education effort. we must address student needs, wellness and also safety. our stretch goals are to make sure that every child is ready to learn. every child is ready when they are beginning high school, every youth enters high school ready to succeed and when they are finished with high school they're ready to transition to adulthood. you'll see each of our strategies are broken out to target early care education, kindergarten through 8, out of school time and work with students who are in ninth
of these initiatives and look forward to working with you, the board of education commissioners to discussion these issues in-depth and help shape our work and present parent perspectives how we can help students to succeed. >> okay thank you. any comments? questions? commissioner maufas. >> thank you very much for presenting today. i just wanted to say i know that the parent advisory council has been instrumental in helping with the restorative practices and moving it forward throughout the san francisco unified school district community among parents. i am happy you made the family engagement plan a priority. i believe you will instrumental that we bring it to fruition and i am happy to see that you're on board with that and i look forward to interim reports in how we're doing and that is key in this process. thank you very much. >> commissioner murase. >> thank you for that report. could you remind us when you meet? >> yes. our meeting dates this year are wednesday's and i believe it's the second wednesday of the month coming up. i can clarify that and get back to you formally with
time and again, touches on, again, education attainment issues. >> i guess at some point in my -- i wonder if we can track some of this. are we tracking it? >> we do have tracking for a number of youth. a breakdown of that demographic. >> i guess the students that are maybe not achieving at the level that we'd like to see, i'd like to understand of those -- of that population that were placed in jobs, what were the challenges they found. >> of course. >> i know that in one instance we found that it was hard for some of the young people, they didn't have computer access. it was hard for them to fill out the applications and that sort of thing. it was just basic on that level. and then we found that in a couple of instances we provided some support groups for young people to talk about what the challenges were that they had met with successful. these were almost voluntary -- we worked with the y and we worked with west side services to provide some of those support groups. and we had a couple in some instances. i think it would be good to have the young people kind of give input as to
and they come from all over the world. we have to make sure our education system lifts them to their highest aspirations. when the society ages, it tends to -- it declines. that is the big demographic imperative. i was reviewing one of my favorite books on the roman republic. how did this village on the tiber grow to be the absolute leader of the known world in a few hundred years? it expanded its territory by plunder, by what ever. details. it was not pretty. [laughter] it added people, it kept getting bigger and incorporated the people and to roman citizenship. it became very consolidated, expanding group of energetic people. and they'll work. they were not just a bunch of talkers, they were doing. -- there were doers. -- they were doers. we have to consolidate on this. we have to find the common path that will enable us to make the investments and undergo the sacrifice that is required because it is not all ice cream and cake here. you have to curtail consumption. whether it is a business or household. in terms of -- the free sector. it is still the same game. looking out for the future,
the time needed to build up a great community of people sharing cars. that lets us find great cars, educate the owners, educate the renters, and ensure there is the right balance and variety of cars. if you look on the site in san francisco, you will literally see cars all over the place. it is all over the bay area. you are seeing cars sharing happening in places it never had before. we worked with the city to see if there were any ways we could get out the word. we hope to work with existing programs or be added as an additional transportation solution. in general, we like to involve the city and city leaders in our announcement of coming to market, and it has been working really well. >> i know you have community managers all over the globe. what's going on there? >> airbnb goes to network effects. we are all over in -- we are already in 19 cities all over the world. we just provide the tools on line, and local residents throughout the world decide they want to be part of the movement and part of airbnb and list their homes on the site, and local travelers decide they want to go somewhe
election for new supervisors, new education boards. i don't feel like nothing is getting done. so, it's a cry out for us and the community to get together and do some family literacy, do some family violence prevention, educational system don't have a curriculum for taking african americans no history. it's all about slavery, about columbus discovered america. he ain't discover no america. abraham lincoln didn't free the slaves because it was a good thing to do. it was decided on union. so, we need to get down to the history books. and when they teach our children the history of how we became great people, how we made these great inventions and things, the school don't teach us. and we wonder why young folks are out there hanging on the streets and saying people keep saying it's a family generation now of schools that is just ridiculous now. everywhere in my community there is a charter school. i don't even know if it's a public school in my community any more. and the charter schools, our kids can't go to the charter schools. we've got a charter school sitting right there on old gold
, educators and community based organizations play a key role in identifying and creating implementing strategies to deal with safety concerns and causes of crime. students, educators and cbos know their schools and communities better than anyone else. they spend their time in them and have created relationships that give them access to information to know how to deal with safety concerns. we all know enforcement alone will never address crime at its roots. we must consider the community-based organizations to support our youth. they are as important as maintaining safe schools and communities just as sfpd. so, as you continue to hear the rest of our youth today, we look to you to address the concerns and understanding that youth input and participation is vital to providing input and feedback to ongoing police and teacher training, providing sufficient resources to our schools, measuring and defining safe schools, on a personal note i attended balboa high school many years ago. and, you know, looking at the bars and the gates, i feel like the school is a prison. by bringing police off
